LBC radio presenter Nigel Farage has criticised Prime Minister Theresa May for saying that dropping bombs on Syria was in the United Kingdom’s “national interest”.
Telling listeners Sunday morning that he was against getting involved in the Syrian civil war, the former UKIP leader said: “Theresa May tells us in her speech that we’re doing this in our national interest. Pull the other one! This is not in our national interest at all.
“If you believe it’ll stop the use of further chemical weapons, then at least you have moral grounds for doing it.
“Don’t try and pretend to me it’s in our national interest. It isn’t.”
On May’s commitment to using British aircraft and servicemen to strike Syria once more should chemical weapons be used on civilians again, the Brexit campaigner warned that the UK would become a “hostage to fortune”.
